|This route starts in the small Highland village of Blair Atholl, it is along Atholl Estates roads (not tarred!). Glen Tilt is a smashing glen, popular with the likes of Queen Victoria.
The route takes you along the bottom of the glen right up to Forest Lodge (a large Estate holiday lodge). You can continue up to the Falls of Tarf and for those feeling really ambitious you can continue on in to Aberdeenshire to Braemar.

|A lovely cycle route up a gorgeous glen.|
Suitable for families with teenagers upwards. A steep start if you're not too fit like myself, but only for the first mile or so.
Starts amongst trees and then opens out to give fantastic views of the approaching glen. Follows the path of the River Tilt along a Land Rover track. Occasional cars from estate workers and holidaymakers. A good leaflet available from Blair Atholl caravan park detailing all the local tracks is well worth the Â£1.50 charge.
